The Jacquet River Salmon Barrier is part of the Jacquet River Salmon Restoration project, a program initially implemented by the NB provincial government to help restore the salmon population in the Jacquet River following a population decline caused by habitat degradation.
As the salmon return to spawn, they meet a barrier that lets smaller fish pass, but detains breeding salmon. Once the best time arrives, usually mid-fall, the salmon are released upriver and are allowed to continue to their spawning grounds. During the time the salmon are detained there is a contingent of approximately eight workers who measure and record data from the salmon to track sizes and return rates. During the 18-20-week period that the program runs, the workers monitor the site 24 hours a day.
Jacquet River Gorge
Off the beaten path is the beautiful Jacquet River Gorge, with its picturesque views, wild life, scenery, picnicking, or just sitting around chatting,
”It’s always a beautiful day at the Gorge”!
While it is not associated with the Village, Paul’s Lookout is always open to new and old faces visiting from near and far. Family, friends and visitors from all over are welcome to enjoy! Approximately 16 kms off Route 134 on Archibald Road, this spot is easy to find and it’s worth seeing the beautiful landscapes along the way!
